No, I can't say anything particularly stood out for me. Then again I don't spend too much time looking at that space, so it's not surprising. Every once in a while you hear about something that fails here or there though.

Here's an article from the end of 2010 that mentions some promising startups in 2011:

I don't know how well they did though, so if anybody else does please chime in.
